Revelation 12:17: The dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring – those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
So easily we forget who our true enemy is – the devil, Lucifer, the one who could not reign in heaven and was kicked out for bad behavior. While we can’t see him he is there. There are so many scriptures that back this up.
It is easier to walk with God and fight the enemy than to walk without God and live without peace. Life spirals down with no hope. But with Jesus we have hope. Here we see the enemy in hot pursuit after the woman – same as in the garden. God made a way for her to escape. He protected her. Even when we can’t see it, God protects us. Even when we disobey, walk away, God protects. We need never forget what God has done for us. This is our testimony. Every victory – every time – we are overcomers.
